A Complete Guide to Motorized Spindles
This book by William L. Harlow, Jr., describes the latest developments on the highly sophisticated CNC tool spindle system, that combines several fields including computer engineering, mechanical engineering, software engineering and electrical engineering. It presents an abstract prediction technique and model for rapid temperature rise and deformation of motorized spindles, and suggests an algorithm for calculating the load capacity and temperature range needed for optimal performance. He then discusses the design process of motorized spindle systems and the different components used to construct them, all based on fundamental mechanical design principles of thermodynamics.
The book presents a high level description of CNC tool spindles, and includes a comprehensive set of technical illustrations and diagrams. It is divided into three main sections, each covering different aspects of motorized tool spindles, and each with its own introduction and discussion. Chapter two discusses how to use CNC tools and their applications, and includes a discussion of how to build a simple CNC tool. This chapter also provides a general discussion of the design and implementation of such a tool.
Chapter three gives an overview of the operation of tooling tools, starting with the basic tools used in manufacturing. It discusses how a tool can be made from one or more components, and provides a detailed discussion of the design and construction of such components. It then covers the components and their installation in a single tool, and introduces the design concept of a spindle. It provides detailed information regarding the various components used in building spindles, including the various types of motors that are used. It concludes with a discussion of a general application of spindles in modern production.
Chapter four presents an outline of the theory of thermodynamics, providing a general explanation of the concepts and their applications. It then describes the use of a single and multiple temperature sources to regulate the heat transfer in a tool. It presents an example of a CNC tool and its effect on a tool bearing. The fifth chapter presents a detailed description of a CNC tool, including its design, performance, and its mechanism, and its effect on a bearing.
In the sixth chapter, Harlow describes the application of CNC tools to manufacturing, with the assistance of a variety of examples. This chapter also covers the various components used in manufacturing, and their respective applications. It continues with an explanation of how to use a motor to regulate heat transfer and the formation of heat, and how to use heat to form and distribute mechanical energy.
Finally, in the last chapter of the book, Harlow describes some of the challenges facing manufacturers when using a motorized spindle. He concludes with a brief summary of the key theoretical points presented throughout the book.
